J.E.FALm SKIPPED? THE LESSEE OF XAJESTIC THEATER QlIT TOWX LAST MCHT. HE LEFT MANY BILLS BEHIND .STRAXDED ACTORS GIVING SHOWS TO PAY TRAVELING EXPENSES. Mr. Conlej. Owner of the Majestic Theater, a lleavy Loser—A New Management. J. E. Faltys. lessee of the Majestic theatre, is missing today. He neglected to settle up some bills with Reln- Isch & Bott, a plumbing firm, Bert Potter and Frank Kelly, contractors, .Mr. Gonley, owner of the >fajestlc buidling, four or five local musicians, six actors an<I possibly others, and consequently they are considerably interested in his whereabouts. Mr..'Faltys came here several >^eeks ago and announced that he had leased the Majestic and wotild run a theatre there this winter. The building which is owned by Mr. Conley. was made Into an up -to -date theatre. Local musicians were employ<'d and shows have been put on for the past two or three weeks. Last night, after the vaudeville show. Mrs. Faltys. wife of the miss- ins theatre man. and Gcor.ce Gillian, who has been more or less connected with Mr. Faltys since his arrival in lola. appeared at the Coburn rooming house on I5a8t street, and announced that they were going away. They said that Mr. Faltys had already left town, where, they said they iliil not know. A trunk belonging to the Faltys' was In the attic of the Coburn liiiilding and could not be taken from the store room without the help of Mr. Coburn. and the latter was called in to help them take it down on the porch. Mr. Falty.<? had. however, paid the Cobums his rent bill. Mrs. Faltys and Mr. Gillian left on the early morning train for Kansas City. \V. E. Wortman and R. E. Holland, two of the actors at the Maje.stic this week, were at the Register office this morning and istated that Mr. Faltys left, they tbotlght. on the nine oVlock train last rtiglit and that he took the receipts of th/; evening. There is coming to the six actors at the Majestic from Mr. Faltys about 5"SiO in salaries. Mr. Conley. owner of the Majestic building, says Faltys sot Into his good graces for several hundred dollars. This amount is largely for bills Mr. C*onley agreed to make good in case y r. Falf.vs failed to pay them. Pott 'r and Kelly this week bi?gan suit in district court to a iiieeliaiilc's lien. In this action the property will make good the claim. Several local musicians were i-m- ployed to furnish music at the tlieatrt and Mr. Falt.vs overlooked them in making his hurried \ireparatlons to lenvi> town. It was said today that thm- was a deal on for another party to take charge of the theatre nhd give shows there this keason. The actors who were iincertemoniously left (lere hy Mr. Faltys ^vill continue to give vaudeville shows at the theatre thi.s week, beginning tonight, to pick up enough change to le.tve town in good form.
